Nokia XR20 product description
This Nokia XR20 is a rugged Android smartphone that should last longer. And it's not just the outside that lasts longer, measures have also been taken to make the inside last longer. You can read what we mean by that here.
First rugged Nokia smartphone
This Nokia XR20 was announced at the end of July 2021 and it is the first rugged Nokia smartphone. This is hard to believe, Nokia phones always seemed to be synonymous with rugged. Nokia owes this reputation to the days when their phones were made of plastic, did not have a large glass screen, and weighed as much as a brick. This made them robust, but they were not designed as such. This XR20 is. The casing is resistant to water, drops, scratches and temperature changes. It is designed to the military MIL-STD-810H standard so it can survive a lot of violence. Nokia is so sure of this that you get a free screen replacement for the first year should the need arise.
Big screen, even bigger body
The screen of the XR20 measures a spacious 6.67 inches. The screen edges are hefty making it larger than phones with the same screen size. There is used Gorilla Glass Victus (7) which is more resistant to drops and scratches. On the back, we find a camera module containing 2 cameras; a 48MP main camera and a 13MP camera with ultra wide-angle lens. The video mode has a special option to filter out wind noise which is always handy. There are two separate flash units that you can also use as a flashlight. The XR20 is also good at sound. Both in recording and playback. Thanks to OZO support, you can record sound in a spacious manner and play it back thanks to the stereo speakers.

Better for the environment
The Nokia XR20 is future proof with 5G support for lightning fast internet on the go. Like all other recent Nokias, the XR20 runs Android One and gets 4 years of security updates and up to 3 Android upgrades. This means the XR20 will last a long time on the inside too. That's kind of environmentally conscious. Another good thing for the environment is the lack of a charger in the box. You probably have one at home anyway, so you can just keep using it. Provided it delivers at least 18W, which is the speed at which you can charge the 4630 mAh battery. To give the environment an extra helping hand, for every XR20 sold, 50 trees will be planted.
